I can just see a "Got Tatts"? poster made to spoof the "Got Milk?" ads, but instead of a milk mustache, the model would have a tribal design on his/her upper lip, hahaha!

Anyway, let's do a tattoo check...I have 5 large ones so far, on my arms and back. They are very artistic, very tasteful black and gray fineline drawings of a running wolf, a howling wolf, a tiger in repose, a horse, and a cactus. All these tattoos have personal meaning to me and I spent a lot time choosing each design (I drew them all up myself). I'm glad tattoos are no longer trendy and that tatts are now left to discriminating collectors once again.

Ok, next!

I've got so many scars on my body from going down and the surgeries to put my bones back together, I can't understand why anyone would want to spend money to deliberately scar up their body.

Tattoo's arn't "art", ART is permanent, lasts hundreds of years, and convey's thoughts and emotions. Tattoo's are poisionous ink impregnated into living tissue.

They used to be the mark of convicts, until the 90's crowd thought scarring up your body would be cool 'cause your parent's didn't want you to do it. For years, and to this day, it's the mark of convicts, why do you want to look like a convict?

You might like them now, but eventially the ink will fade and blend together and you will have big dark blobs on your skin. The pain to get them removed will be far worse than what it felt like to put them in. The Human body's not a chalkboard, it can't be erased if you make a mistake!

I've got one tattoo. A map of my local region, on my shoulder. Got it 20 years ago, after a group of us got 'turned around' on a mountain bike ride, and popped out of the woods about 40 miles from where we parked the van. I got the map tat to use as a reference on future rides.

4 scarifications. One "Pennywise" symbol on my left forearm and one "Bad Religion" symbol on my right forearm. A heart with an X through it on my left shoulder. and a crying smily face on my right pectoral nicknamed "death" to remind me to live in the present.
